Difficulties in diagnosis of thyroid lesions, even with histologic analysis, are well known. This study has been carried on to evaluate the role of immunohistochemical markers including galectin-3, Hector Battifora mesothelial cell-1 (HBME-1), and cytokeratin-19 in the diagnosis and differential diagnosis of benign and malignant thyroid lesions. The expressions of galectin-3, HBME-1, and cytokeratin-19 were tested in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues from 458 surgically resected thyroid lesions including non-neoplastic and neoplastic lesions. Immunostaining with standard avidin-biotin complex technique was performed by using . . . monoclonal antibodies. In malignant neoplastic thyroid lesions, galectin-3, HBME-1, and cytokeratin-19 were diffusely expressed in general. Diffuse expression rates of these three markers were 72.3% (47/65), 70.7% (46/65), and 76.9% (50/65), respectively. The use of galectin-3, HBME-1, and cytokeratin-19 may provide significant contributions in the differential diagnosis of malignant thyroid tumors. Although focal galectin-3, HBME-1, and cytokeratin-19 expression may be encountered in benign lesions, diffuse positive reactions for these three markers are characteristic of malignant lesions. It has concluded that cytokeratin-19 alone and its combinations with other markers were more sensitive in accurate diagnosis of papillary carcinoma than the other combinations; meanwhile, there were similar results for follicular carcinomas with HBME-1 alone and its combinations. © 2009 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC Daha fazlası Daha az

Background: Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy is a primary cardiac disease characterized by left ventricular hypertrophy, myocyte hypertrophy and irregularities and interstitial fibrosis in the absence of any cardiac or systemic diseases and may lead to sudden cardiac death (SCD). Galectin-3 is a ß-galactoside-binding lectin that has been associated with cardiac fibrosis and inflammation. In this study, we aimed to investigate the relationship between serum galectin-3 levels and the criteria for 5-year sudden death risk, recently defined in the European Society of Cardiology guidelines (2014), in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. . . . Materials and Methods: A total of 52 hypertrophic cardiomyopathy patients were enrolled in the study. Patients were questioned for sudden death risk predictors as outlined in the 2014 European Society of Cardiology guideline. A standardized clinical evaluation was carried out on the basis of previously described prognostic variables to calculate the 5-year risk of SCD. Blood samples were taken from all patients to measure serum galectin-3 levels. A statistical significance level of P < 0.05 was accepted in all tests. Results: We found that there was a significant correlation between the estimated 5-year risk of SCD and serum levels of galectin-3. Conclusions: Galectin-3 may be an inexpensive and easily accessible parameter to predict arrhythmia risk. In addition, it can be used to determine antiarrhythmic prophylaxis as a predictor of an arrhythmia storm in implantable cardioverter defibrillator-implanted patients who are not available for magnetic resonance imaging. © 2018 Southern Society for Clinical Investigatio Daha fazlası Daha az
